“The CPSM” set me apart and was a factor in me being promoted to a new position. It opened my eyes to the parts of supply management that I do not deal with on a daily basis and gave me many more tools in my toolbox. Coworkers come to me as a resource. They saw how I increased my knowledge, as well as the credibility the CPSM¨ gives me with them and our customer base. Obtaining my CPSM¨ and the continued training to keep it has been a real win-win situation for me.”
